Aimee Chase began dancing at the age of 4 at Miller’s Dance Studio in Aurora, Colorado. During her years there, she competed and performed all around the country and on cruise ships. She had the opportunity to train in a variety of styles from many incredible mentors, but one of her favorite experiences was Michael Minery’s tap intensive, Slide. After high school, Aimee studied Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and was a member of the CU Express Dance Team for 2 years. After graduation, she suffered from what some might call a ‘quarter-life crisis,’ and decided to move to Chicago for an adventure. She was anxious to immerse herself in the Chicago dance community and was immediately inspired by Mark Yonally and Chicago Tap Theatre and their ability to tell stories through intricate and technical tap steps. This is Aimee’s 6th season in Chicago Tap Theatre, and she is thrilled to have found such a wonderful dance family and dance alongside such exceptional talent! Thank you to my family and friends, both near and far, for their constant love and support!
